Starting with the very first issue which was released on 5 March 1862, the New South Wales Police Gazette was generally issued once a week. This CD-ROM is a compilation of all of the issues of the that were issued during that year.

Each issue is usually six pages long, and contains information such as court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, and missing persons, house-breakins, deserting wives and families, inquests, lost and found property, missing friends and more ... Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included. There is a small amount of convict related information included in these issues.

The Police Gazettes are an incredibly unique source of information, simply because they were designed to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, and the information contained often cannot be found anywhere else.

Example entry from 2 April 1862:
